Explore the most popular beach trails in Maryland with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Well marked trails. Orange trail has a bit of up and down through the forest and Red Trail is relatively flat. Bathrooms/Port-o-Potties at both ends of the Red Trail.

A nice hike along the water. A few inclines but a fairly easy hike. Beautiful views at the lighthouse and inside of it.

I agree with the other reviews that this should be considered moderate. Had some difficulty finding the trailhead, but it was a great hike otherwise.

amazing boardwalk. flat with entertaining sites and sounds.

Very short trail but nice view at the end! Ignore the picture someone posted with the boardwalk. That is not on this trail.

The winding trail and the tree “obstacles” kept this hike interesting. We didn’t see any beavers but lots of cool looking uprooted trees. And the final beach at the end was super cool. Our dog sprinted back and forth when we got there :)

Not much of a hike but if you are visiting the park this is a fun stop and a great overlook of the Chesapeake.

From all the reviews it seems that none of these people have completed full length up to Pine tree campground. From trailhead there is a half mile loop walk. Most of the people will do that. After that half mile, you will have to turn left on beach and it continues about 3.9 miles after that you need to turn right and Pine tree campground is about .35 miles from there. Running on beach was sometime boring too. Pine tree were nice.

Amazing views!

Great trial. Probably would rate this moderate instead of easy. With all the leaves on the trial. It’s hard to see all the rocks on the trial.

trail has been flooded since spring 2018. needs planking

Easy trail. The falls are crowded in the summer. When you loop back, you see some nice boulders.

The weather people were calling for rain today so we got a early start. - This area is one of my favorites because I grew up here on a 84 acre farm. - During the 40's, there was an amusement park here and my Dad helped out as a pin-setter setting bowling pins by hand. - Much of the park area is being re-discovered. - The wife and I enjoy hiking or biking this area because it all flat. - Basically Sea level. - It's a great section to learn mountain biking because of the easy earthen trails.- Today we brought our two beagles. Great area for older dogs. - I also have 4 mile loops of this park listed under North Point State Park.

Easy trail to navigate, but could be better marked. As another reviewer said, it’s a guessing game as to where to start.

Many times this trail is closed since it is owned by the Navy. You need to google “Greenbury point twitter” to see if it is open. It is a treat when it IS open. Great views of the Chesapeake Bay and Annapolis. Wear boots as there can be wet areas. There is a very interesting video on YouTube about the history of the area.

Nice trail, heavy rains left a stream to cross. Lots of rocks to walk on.

A pretty casual hike. A bit busy sometimes. Kids loved it.

Great Trail! Nice Views of the Bay!

This hike was a nice walk around a marsh. It was very peaceful and my dog loved it. It is not very hilly and I would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely hike around a beautiful marsh full of life. Fall colors and the sun peaking through the canopy made for a nice scenic short hike. Interesting pathways with many large fallen trees. Turn right at the beach and feast your eyes on a great view of the Chesapeake. Well marked trail.
Enjoy...

I enjoyed this hike. The red trail is a super easy walk to the beach. The orange trail coming back was my favorite part. That’s where you’ll gain some elevation. There are several trails here that intersect so as long as you pay attention to the blazes you’re good.

The people at the park headquarters were lovely and had lots of information. Not the most amazing hike but the signs in the woods were nice to explain local ecology and history. Will have to come back with the kayaks to explore the water trails.

Beautiful park and scenery!

The wife and I had a beautiful evening HIKING the 4 mile perimeter trail. - We got a special treat and saw a red fox. - It was a bit humid so I guess the deer were in the thick. - The main outer trails is paved and there are a few inner trails that are natural dirt. - Due to all the rain, many sections of the woods were flooded so you may want to stay on the blacktop trails.- Great place for the kids.- Playground or biking short loops. - Fishing pier too. - Picnic tables all around the place or just sit on the hill and look at the bay.

A nice and easy walk to the lighthouse- our dog loved running through the tall grass!

Very easy, all stone road trail. Plenty of deer when I went. Nice views from the lighthouse cliff. Head left when you leave (if you are facing the treeline) through the mowed grass path to a trail leading to a nice, lower view of the water. This trail leads back to the main rocky trail that you come in on. Parking may be scarce depending on when you go (not bad mid September). Nice easy trail that almost anybody could do

Got a heck of a rash going on, presumably from this trail, but not 100% sure (looks like poison ivy). Went through probably 100 spider webs in total. Like others have said, overall the trail was not bad until the end. I could not tell where to go. Water was up high on beach and beach was littered with logs and wood so could not really see a solid direction to go. Made the decision to head down the beach since that seemed the most logical way since that's where the trail began. It is meant to go that way but due to the water and driftwood had to step into some water to get up the rocks to the end of the trail. Runs parallel to a campground with bathhouses (at least that's what they looked like) if you had to use the bathroom, etc. Maybe more difficult when campers are present as you may have to go near someones campsite. Few rather large downed trees still. If you have limited mobility this is something to consider. Large beaver dam in the middle of the marsh. Saw quite a few deer that were happy to stop and stare at me for a minute or two. Mosquitoes were not bad l, just the spiders.

beautiful views, the overgrown nature gives a feeling of being enclosed in a sort of forest fairytale at some points. Amazing view of baybridge, the eastern shore, tankers, annapolis, and the naval academy.

I'd like to note that biking this trail is super fun too.

Took the orange down to the beach and then back. About 5 miles. Peaceful little trail

Great trail for walking my dog. Just check for ticks after you get out of the woods.
